If I could give this photo 2 votes I would. In fact I'd give it 10. And while my mind's on numbers, there's way more than a 1000 words in the story shown here. For starters, how about the subtle turn upwards in the leftmost feather? There is remarkable balance as the heron carries the fish, while its feet form a perfect 10. The back of the bird looks like an oil painting while the feathers closest to the camera have astounding photographic detail. The bird's eye is intent on survival while the fish dies at the end of the beak - its fin fanning, a mimic of the spread of the bird's wing feathers. Next would be mood, light, background, composition, etc. Thank you Richard Mann. This photograph impresses me quite close to the extent that Hemingway's The Old Man and the Sea impressed me when I read it. vx10/f

Thanks! I wished the fish was more visible. In the follow on shots this fish was swallowed whole!
